About High Wire Crag:

Fun slab climbing with good sun exposure in winter. Most routes are on the long side so a 60 meter rope is a good idea. There are a few multi pitch routes on this crag, most notably "Peoples Choice" wich always seems to have people on it. This is a great place to spend an afternoon if you are a 5.10 leader or warm up here and move over to the Wall Of Justice for a good day of 5.12 climbing.

Directions: Take US-6 from Golden, this crag is about 5 miles up canyon on the left side of Tunnel 2. Park in a "pull out" before reaching tunnel 2, the pullout is just across the river from The New River Wall

Approach: walk towards tunnel from pull-out (trail on right side of guardrail is safest). cross street to left side of tunnel and scramble up the rocks to base of routes. Lat and Lon below are wrong. 39.737637,-105.319728 is correct
Approach Time: 5-10 minutes
Latitude, Longitude: 39.44000, -105.19000
